In the course of his long life he made many friends, all of whom come to respect and honor him as an upright and as a most industrious citizen. Early in life he traveled through several states of the South, but later returned to his native soil to settle down for a long life in the Piney Grove community. He was a progressive farmer, a hard worker, and a lover of the soil and its fruits. For almost a half century he was known for his breeding and improving a variety of corn known as Jarvis Golden Prolific.

He pursued the breeding of corn until the middle thirties when he was too old to do field work any more, but he never gave it up until his name was synonymous with good farming practices over a wide territory.
